GARDAÍ ARE INVESTIGATING “all the circumstances” surrounding the discovery of a man’s body in a Limerick car park.

The body of the man, aged in his 40s, was discovered in the early hours of this morning in Steamboat Quay Car Park, Limerick.

It’s understood the deceased is a foreign national and that he may have suffered head injuries.
